Shipping

 

Our current shipping options are:

Curbside Pickup: Free

UPS Ground Shipping: $7 for the first item and an additional $1 for each additional item. This method will get to most addresses in 3-5 business days and often in 1-2 if the items you order are in the store. Choosing this shipping method also gives us the ability to have your order ship directly from the wholesaler’s warehouse which can sometimes be faster.

Local Delivery: $5 flat fee. This option will be available to customers who are shipping to Cambridge and Somerville.

Offset Costs Media Mail: $2.80 for the first item and an additional $.30 for each additional item. NOTE: Puzzles, games, gifts, and bundles are not eligible for media mail. Media mail generally takes 5-7 days to arrive but can take as long as 30 days and is uninsured.  

Providing Access: Free Media Mail on Us: Free. We don’t want the cost of shipping to be a barrier to someone getting a book. We also know that many readers will not feel safe to use the curbside pick up option. So, we will continue to provide a free media mail option. If a shipping fee does not present a barrier to you, we encourage you to use one of the other shipping options, as those fees help us cover the cost of free shipping. NOTE: Puzzles, games, gifts, and bundles are not eligible for media mail.

(Unfortunately, we have suspended international shipping for the time being.)
